After reviewing the facts in the case, Edmonds police have prepared a report to the Snohomish County Prosecutor that could lead to class C felony charges being brought against the owner of a dog who bit a 6-year-old boy at Brackett’s Landing Aug. 19.
News coverage of the incident by My Edmonds News and others led to a tip that helped police identify the owner, a 40-year-old Edmonds man.
“We’ve been studying the facts in the case, and have determined that these might justify felony charges under RCW 16.08,” Sgt. Shane Hawley told My Edmonds News Friday.
The report was sent to the prosecutor late in the day Friday. The prosecutor will review the report next week, and based on this review will decide whether charges are justified, Hawley said.
